What makes a joke funny? Well, the jury is out on the exact formula, but when it comes to things like complex relationships and emotions, part of what makes you laugh is your ability to connect with the material.
And if you’ve ever been or are currently married, there’s no denying the hilarious truth in these 18 comments.
18. You have to play to your strengths.
My husband arguing with me about how much I like to argue is the spark that keeps this marriage alive.

17. Hopefully your wife doesn’t take it to a third party.
A marriage is like a car in the sense that I have no idea what to do when it breaks down.

16. Who was more excited to see him?
My husband came home from being gone for 6 days, walked through the door & went straight to the dog.
And that’s what it’s like to be married for 20 years.

15. She just doesn’t want you to make her mistakes, that’s all.
MIL: You have to teach them really young to pick up after themselves
Me: *watching my husband take off his socks and leave them in the middle of the living room*

14. Why are they like this?
Me: Do you want to watch this show with me?
Husband: No thanks. You go ahead.
*6 episodes later*
Husband: So who's that guy? Why's he doing that? Wasn't he doing that other thing before? Hey, where are you going?

13. Do it, please…not like that, though.
Marriage is 50% your wife being upset that you don't do enough chores and 50% of her yelling at you for ruining her shirt by doing the laundry.

12. You know that it is.
I have a cold and it’s pretty bad but my wife has a husband with a cold and apparently that’s way worse.

11. I mean he’s probably not too far off. Unless you fall asleep.
What I say to my husband: “Let’s cuddle on the couch and watch something.”
What he hears: “Let’s have sex in like 15 minutes.”

10. Outsourcing can save marriages.
Wife: Can you do something for me?
Wife: Can you do it without complaining?
Me: I'll get someone else.

9. Bahaha this made me cringe and laugh at the same time.
"No means no," I remind my wife, as she eyes the pimple on my shoulder.

8. You don’t want to NAG though.
Instead of asking my husband to do something, I just casually mention 300 times that it needs to be done and hope he picks up what I’m laying down. And so far, this strategy has been wildly unsuccessful.

7. It happens to the best of us!
I've been married for over 16 years, I barely can remember what that thing I like is.

6. HOW DARE HE.
My husband came home with pizza sauce on his collar and no pizza and now I know what it’s like to be cheated on.

5. Actions speak louder than words.
My husband just got back from the gym and took a nap on the freshly washed sheets and he could have just told me he wanted a divorce
— Mom On The Rocks (@mom_ontherocks) January 6, 2020
4. He knows where he falls in the pecking order.
Me: Oh baby I’ve been thinking about you all day
Hubs: Are you talking dirty to the bed

3. You know what she means.
Wife: You're doing it wrong.
Wife: *motions vaguely in the direction of my entire life*
— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) January 6, 2020
2. At least he hasn’t changed?
My husband surprised me with a night out to celebrate the anniversary of our first date. I was reminded of the man I fell in love with.
We arrived at the theater and learned the movie was playing at a different location a full hour earlier. I was reminded of the man I married.

1. It is the kindest course of action.
Me: I think I’m getting sick.
Wife: Hold on, I have something for that.
Wife: [starts smothering me with a pillow]

Marriage is great, but also, there are some days when you really, really need to laugh about it so you don’t go screaming naked down the street.
Just me? I doubt it.
